Hey everyboady,

I have gotten a email from my website from this guy who wants to buy 10 iPods.
but he can't pay by PayPal but he wants to pay via western union?
how safe is it for me to take payment that way?
I don't even know why I'm asking you guy this cos it just sounds like a SCAM.
thanks for your time

You can be fairly certain this is a scam. However, if you want to be sure, ask him if he will pay by Escrow.com. If he says no, ask him why not as there is no reason someone with honest intentions should not want to use this payment method. I've had this happen before and after asking why they would not use Escrow the 'buyer' just stopped emailing me.

PS. Western Union is not a secure payment method. There is no protection for either the buyer or the seller.
